Supposedly my father somewhere has his old Minolta SLR and my grandpa his Pentax SLR. Will try to dig it up and look what lenses they still have.
Do you have any suggestions for important reads or a very important tip if I give it a try?
How would I go about getting film? eBaying it? And what kind should I try to get my hands on as a total beginner? I'd want to shoot portrait or city landscape with it as I don't want to afford shooting macro analog
